"Mark does a consistent job of making his textbooks very teachable by providing the end of chapter glossary, review questions, and projects."

"Good in depth coverage of the latest standards and devices."

"I like that the projects incorporate Windows 7 and the Case Studies engage the student and require them to do additional research that will broaden their knowledge."
